Ever wondered about setting up a networked suite of Raspberry Pi’s ??  Having pupils logging on to individual accounts and saving their work to a server sounds like a dream come true. It could amount to  a mammoth task at first in terms of battling with reams of code and yards and yards and yards of ethernet cables to the uninitiated.

Well – fear not as Andrew Mulholland has detailed the method on his excellent blog , taking the voodoo out of the setup. Sure it involves a bit of effort and some support from your IT techies, but once setup very easy to maintain. It will enable you to run a class or a workshop with a class set of RaspberryPi’s without the nightmare distribution/collection/loss of SD cards, furthermore collecting and sampling work is relatively pain free. This is very impressive work and a very important development, particularly for schools and colleges using the RaspberryPi on a day to day basis.
